Hi Tommaso,

I think it's good to use Nexus for stuff that we want to end up going to Maven
Central.  This includes all our individual Jars.  And this is now setup and what
happens when mvn release:perform is done.

However, Maven Central seems *not appropriate* for our big source releases and
binary releases, which are quite large (> 16 MB each (lots of docs :-) ), and
which we want the Apache Mirroring system to be used for downloading and

I asked about this on the Maven user's list and got an interesting answer.
Someone figured out how to do this for their project.  It's quite tricky, but I
can see how it works.  It's so tricky, though, that I'm looking around for a
better answer; to that end I've posted to the "release-discuss" mailing list at
Apache, and asked others to describe how they "solve" this problem.

Here are pointers to these other mail threads:
